Liberty Named Official Supplier to U.S. Freeskiing
Colorado’s Leading Independent Skiing Company To Supply Olympic Halfpipe And Slopestyle Athletes
From Libertyskis.com — Liberty Skis is proud to announce that the brand has partnered with U.S. Freeskiing to become an official U.S. Freeskiing Supplier. “We are very excited to be able to support the U.S. Ski Team and their Olympic athletes,” says Chairman and Founder James Satloff. “It’s an honor to be part of U.S. Skiing, and we look forward to helping the next generation of Olympians reach their goals in Sochi.”
Liberty is no stranger to freeskiing. The innovative Colorado brand has a strong tradition of working with young athletes, including park and pipe skiers. Currently Kendall Deighan, ranked 5th in the USA in halfpipe is riding on Liberty.
“Liberty has been incredibly supportive,” says Kendall Deighan. “They understand the commitment and hard work that it takes to reach the Olympics, and they know that having the best equipment is essential to competing at the highest level. I hope to represent the USA in Sochi, and when I do, I’ll be riding Liberty Skis.”
“We’ve always believed that freesking will eventually become an Olympic discipline, and with the announcement by the International Ski Federation (FIS) earlier this year that halfpipe and slopestyle would be medal events in Sochi, the next logical step was supporting our homegrown athletes and U.S. Freesking,” adds Liberty President and co-founder Dan Chalfant. “It’s an honor to help these talented athletes work towards the next Olympic games in Sochi and future Games.”
Based in Avon, Colorado, Liberty manufactures a full line of high performance twin-tip skis for park, pipe and big-mountain skiing. The brand’s products are consistently ranked among the best, with this year’s line-up winning 14 “Editor’s Picks” or other awards. You can learn more about the company at libertyskis.com.
